Some of the generals were General Gorge Rosado de la Colina
USN and some USMC
4-7 June 1942
USN decisive victory.The simple fact that the US emerged as victor from the battle of Midway is not the reason for it being the turning point ... To summarize some of the above, and place more emphasis where it belongs:
Continue striking at Midway Island (with general purpose bombs) or arm with torpedos and go "carrier hunting."
Some major WWII battles include: Battle of Britain Battle of the Bulge Battle of Iwa Jima & Okinawa Battle of Leningrad Battle of Midway Battle of Pearl Harbor Battle of Stalingrad

The Battle of Midway took place in 1942, now seventy years ago. Veterans of the battle are now in their eighties and nineties so some are still with us. However, if you are asking in order to talk to one of the veterans about the battle or to simply honor them for their role in the battle, make it soon. We have a limited time to honor our heroes.

Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna (or has he was known by, Santa Anna)
With the exception of one crewman, the total annihilation of Torpedo Squadron 8.
Had not Japan lost the "cream of the crop" of their naval airmen at Midway in 1942; Japan might have won battles, that they historically lost after Midway. And/or men that are today's "grandfathers" may not have survived some of the post-Midway battles. Meaning, certain people of today, would not have been born.
US SHIPS: * Three aircraft carriers: Hornet, Enterprise, Yorktown * Eight cruisers * Fourteen Destroyers * Some submarines shielding the fleet (but not in the battle itself)
DURING THE BOMBING OF MIDWAY THE JAPENES AND THE U.S. WERE IN BATTLE LOTS OF GUNS WERE SHOT OFF AND ALOT OF AIRCRAFT CARRIERS WERE DISTROYED AND NOT TO MENTION A LOT OF PLANES WERE SHOT AND BLEW UP KILLING A LOT OF PEOPLE AND SOME WERE WILLING TO RISK THEIR LIFES AND DIE FIGHTING FOR US.
Pearl Harbor was attacked without provocation on December 7th in 1941 by the Japanese Naval fleet and airplanes.

The Battle of Midway was a decisive naval battle in the Pacific. Some historians consider it to be the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare.
